Public gets say on Delmar \high-end condo deal

It calls for 64 parking spaces, up from the required 60 spaces, and a circular access road to Delaware Avenue that will allow for two-way traffic. A storm water basin is to be built underground in order to collect runoff and storm water.

Construction plans show gray architectural shingles for all over the buildings with various siding and shutter colors. The overhead doors will be "carriage style doors," according to Bolduc.

The biggest concerns of the residents who spoke were excessive runoff water, storm water management and traffic. There were also some comments about landscaping, the appearance of the condos, when workers would begin construction, lighting, the environmental impact, and exactly who will be moving into the project.

"I have concern with the drainage and I would like you to examine it before construction begins," said Steven Bukowski. He also asked, "How can you say there will be no environmental impact?"

Resident Alon Dolmnitz agreed, saying, "I've also had some concern with the drainage here."

Dolmnitz said he was in favor of the project in general, but he wanted to know what energy-saving measures would be included.

Bolduc told residents that the project will be "energy conscious," and that Keystone Builders would use the best techniques available, as well as install Energy Star appliances.

"We use a very high-quality product; it is very green and very expensive," Bolduc said of materials he will be building with, including a new spray foam insulation that he said is environmentally sound.

"The foam saves about 20-percent usage in energy consumption and we will be using high-efficiency appliances and furnaces," Bolduc said. "Hopefully it will save everyone in the long run."

Planning Board Chairman Parker Mathusa said all of the resident's comments would be taken into consideration as the board looks over the plans.
